Compliance Update – are you ready for the new Regulatory Requirements: an update on PCI and PDPL

The ever-growing importance of Data Security is a direct consequence of the Digital Transformation: as more and more devices become connected, Data have become the Crown Jewels of every organization. Data are the key to analytics and therefore to current and future knowledge. Since those Data are becoming more and more Mobile, Data must be protected also outside of the IT environment of organizations and on all devices. In order to account for that development, industry and regulatory bodies react: Compliance and Data Protection Regulations increase – existing ones are tightened and new ones are surfacing. Utimaco provides an update on the most relevant changes in the global, regional or industry-specific regulations and provides a compass for the compliance jungle.
